1987 Mercedes-Benz 300SDL

Started on Sept. 30, 2015, 8:19 a.m.

Every situation doesn't necessarily call for a sports car. Our commute, for example: it's a long, straight, bumpy, boring road. Nobody wants to drive that in a Miata every day, including us.

So we bought the antithesis of everything sporty, fast, or nimble: a giant old diesel Mercedes. The goal? Commute like a king. 208 inches of German highway cruiser has joined our fleet, so follow along to see how far it will take us.
